Which level is right for me?

Other than complete beginners, it is necessary to evaluate all new or returning students in order to place them in the correct level. Evaluations are free, brief (5 to 10 minutes), painless and without obligation.

Complete beginners who never had French before may sign up for a Level 1 course without an evaluation. However, if you took French classes before or studied French on your own, we strongly recommend that you contact us for a free, easy and painless evaluation of your level.

To arrange for an evaluation or if you have any questions, please call us a (415) 362-3666 or send us a message at info@frenchclass.com
